Hi all,
I followed that guide here: http://blog.brianlee...start-to-finish
I did all the steps, now the machine is off (after sysprep CMDs... what next?
and I can't download Windows PE 3.0
For what is it? and what do I do with that?

Also, can someone explain how the deployment taks action in realtime? what Do I should do after I'm capturing an ImageX.wim file? And how do I install that machine I created to others?

I guess you must be talking about capturing the install.wim, if you wish to capture the install.wim you need to boot your system in winPE with either imageX or GimageX and then capture your install.wim. This is how you can make your winPE: http://technet.micro...311(WS.10).aspx

for what is the install.wim image? and how can I use it?

I remember that in windows XP you put the sysprep CMDs and then you start-up the GHOST and capture the disk to Image.. and restore it whenever you like..:)

how is the install.wim makes a difference?

Many Thanks :)

creating the install.wim is the same as capturing your ghost image. You can still use ghost to capture and deploy the image if you so desire. Otherwise you can use WinPE and imagex to capture and deploy the image.
